They went out of business a while back, which it too bad, because it was a good place to spend a few hours. I heard that the rent was just too expensive in the area (the richest part of town). Hopefully, something similar will pop up later, maybe in another location.

This is a pretty good flea market, with decent shops and a lot to take in. Some of the other reviewers have taken a snobby attitude about it... But enjoy it for what it is-- a nice flea market that is a lot cleaner and friendlier than many similar venues I've visited around the country. If you want Macy's, go... More

I went here more than once but, there were only a FEW venders who had decent things...The rest were all like STAR SALES junk. I heard it went out of business....doesn't surprise me AT ALL.

While on a weekend visit we decided to check out Market Square. The weather was perfect so there were lots of people out. There were a few places to eat and a couple shops. It was very clean and super dog friendly. One of my favorite parts of our trip.

I found so much under one roof - from handmade birdhouses and jewelry to Amish jams and even watch & jewelry repair! It's so fun just to wander the aisles and see what you come across. There's a cool antique place in the corner that has 200 year old doors from India too. Cool!

The Turkey Creek Public Market recently opened and is still growing (Sept. 2011). There are spaces to have about 700+ vendors under one roof when it is filled to capacity. There are also a few eateries and snack places there, too. This used to be an outlet mall just off I-40 in Knoxville, TN and they converted the space. It... More
